North Dakota for Homeseekers. 



Farming in North Dakota is no experiment. Its record in 1895 was: Wheat, 20 1 
50 bushels to the acre; flax, 15 to 25 bushels; oats, 40 to 80 bushels; potatoes, 200 \ 
300 bushels, and other crops in proportion. 

It enjoys an enviable reputation for raising live stock and dairying. Its healthfu 
ness is unquestionable. The summer heat never depresses and the winter cold nev( 
chills. 

The Brethren living in that State have been there long enough to satisfy then 
selves as to the fertility of the soil and the general excellence of the climate. TI 
Brethren colonies now located in North Dakota are centred mainly about the foUowir 
places: 



Cando Towner County. 

Bisbee, Towner County. 

Maza, Towner County. 

Rutten, Ramsey County. 

Devils Lake, Ramsey County. 

Crary, Ramsey County. 

Grand Harbor, Ramsey County. 



Starkweather, Ramsey Count 

Penn, Ramsey Count 

Church's Ferry, Ramsey Count 

York, Benson Count 

Mayville, Traill Count 

Hope, Steele Count 

Clifford, Traill Count 



Those at Hope and Clifford are Brethren of the Old Order. 

Churches have been organized at various points. The largest organization is pe 
haps that at Cando, where the membership is over one hundred. Services, however^ ai 
held at most of the places named above. 

The post-office addresses of ministers are as follows: 



A. B. Peters, Cando, N. Uak. 

Levi E. Miller, Cando, N. Dak. 

Isaac Deardorff, Cando, N. Dak. 

Jesse Peters, Cando, N. Dak.

Free Government land can still be taken up within reasonable distance of most 
the places named above, except Mayville. It is the wish of the Brethren to strength' 
the societies already organized, and a cordial invitation is extended to homeseekers 
investigate the country and its advantages. .Persons looking for locations can write 
any of the ministers named above, or to the undersigned, who will be glad to answ 
questions about the country, and send printed matter free to any one. 



220 South Clark Street. 



CHICAGO, ILL., 



The Brethren represent a reformatory 
novement which took definite form in Ger- 
nany in the year 1708. A few devout men 
md women, eight in all, became very much 
^fhssatisfied with the corrupt Christianity of 
;he age. They could find no people obey- 
ng the form of doctrine clearly set forth in 
he New Testament, and they noticed a great 
ack of spirituality among professors of ev- 
ry class. So they resolved to take the

tudy it with the utmost care, make it the 
ule of their faith and practice and conform 
heir lives to its teachings. After much 
tudy and prayer they reached the conclu- 
ion that faith, repentance and baptism are 
epospel conditions of pardon, for they read, 
^f He that believeth and is baptized shall be 
aved; but he that believeth not shall be 
lamned." Mark 16: 16. They also called 
o mind the language of Peter on the dsty of 
DaPentecost: "Repent, and be baptized every 
D^^ne of you in the name of Jesus Christ for 
he remission of sins, and ye shall receive 
he gift of the Holy Ghost." Acts 2: 38. 
^utting these two Scriptures together, they 
;ould not help seeing that, in order to have 
heir sins fully remitted, they must not only 
)elieve on Jesus the Christ, but they must 
dth godly sorrow depart from all sin and 
ollow the example of Christ in 



BAPTISM. 

They read how John administered baptism 
n the river Jordan, how Jesus came up out 
)f the water after his baptism, and also how 
*hilip and the eunuch both went from the 
hariot down into the water, where the for- 
aer baptized the latter; and then again how 



they both came up out of the water. Acts 
8- 38» 39- They considered well the teach- 
ings of Paul in Rom. 6: 4, where he speaks of 
being buried with Christ in baptism. They 
were thus led to believe that nothing short 
of immersion would answer the purpose of 
the 

NEW TESTAMENT BAPTISM. 

The form of this baptism was a matter of 
no little concern to them. They carefully 
analyzed the commission, as recorded in 
Matt. 28: 19. Here it is stated that Jesus in- 
structed his disciples to teach the people, 
"baptizing them in the name of the Father, 
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." 
They could see no way of doing this but by 
an action in the name of each person men- 
tioned in the formula. With the commis- 
sion they compared such sentences as are 
found in Luke 23: 38 and Rev. 3: 12. In the 
former we read, "A superscription also was 
written over him, in letters of Greek, and 
Latin, and Hebrew." To them it was evi- 
dent that to write in Greek, and Latin, and 
Hebrew would require three actions; so they 
naturally inferred that, in order to baptize in 
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and 
of the Holy Ghost, three actions would also 
be necessary. In the citation mentioned in 
Revelation it is stated, leaving out the Ital- 
^ ics, which are not in the original, "I will 
write upon him the name of my God, and 
the name of the city of my God . . and my 
new name." To write the name of God 
would be one act, the name of the city a sec- 
ond act, and the new name a third act. So 
by comparing Scripture with Scripture they 
were led to the conclusion that the threefold 
immersion, generally called trine immersion,

lat, as far back as history records the facts, 
lis was the form of baptism used in all the 
ncient churches, and that- no extensive 
hange was made, even among the Baptists, 
ntil after the Reformation. Probably they 
Iso knew that backward immersion was in- 
oduced, or rather invented, in Europe only 
bout 190 years prior to their time. They 
new, too, that all acts of worship and obe- 
ience demanded by the Scriptures should 
e performed by the forward action; hence

each of them, accompanied by prayer. This 
they understood to be the teachings of the 
apostles, for they learned that the apostles 
laid hands on those baptized by Philip at Sa- 
maria, and Paul did likewise to those he bap- 
tized at Ephesus. Thus, by the laying on of 
hands, these devout people were set apart for 
God's service, and they realized that they 
had received the remission of sins as well as 
the gift of the Holy Ghost, for Peter, preach-

t was but reasonable that they should adopt 
he forward action in baptism. So on a set 
ay the eight faithful ones mentioned above, 
epaired to the riverside for a season of 
)rayer, after which they went down into the 
^ater and were baptized into the name of 
he Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 
jhost, one of the men administering the rite 
o one of the number, and he to the others,

MARS IS THE RULING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



eyt 
nfoi 



The Year in General.— Under this planet 
the year is more dry than humid, and though there 
be frequent rains, yet it will be very dry. 

Spring.— In general will be dry, rough and cold^ 
with frost until the first of May; hence the sheep 
should not be put on the grain and meadows, as 
they will do more injury than good. 

Summer.— Mars occasions, above all other plan- 
ets, a hot summer, and the heat of the Sun will 
be so great, that one can scarcely walk on the sand 
without shoes. The nights will be very warm and 
insufferable. Rivers, springs and wells will be very 
low. 

Fall. — Will be more dry than humid, and 
grapes will yield much wine. Even if it does 
occasionally freeze in October, November will be 
warm throughout. There will be but little snow 
before the last of November. 

Winter. — Will be tolerably cold, dry and 
changeable. 

Spring Crops. — Barley sown in time on well 
manured land will yield well; but late sowing, on 



sand and heavy clay soil, will produce little. All 
spring crops should be well covered. There wil; 
be but little oats, yet very good. Corn, buckwheat, 
rice, and tobacco will yield well. Potatoes, cab- 
bage and turnips will be a medium crop. Hay 
and aftermath will oe light, therefore sheep f^ 
should be kept off the meadows. 

Fall Crops.— Rye will yield well 
will be only a medium crop. 

Fall seeding.— As the winter will set in late 
early sowing will not be necessary. 

Fruit.— Pears will be a better crop than apples 
Cherries and quinces will be very scarce. N( 
acorns and but few nuts.

ord in order to go on to perfection, for 
ly felt that it was not only their duty to 
Inform to the rites and ceremonies of the 
;w Testament, but to endeavor to live 
Dve the world, its pleasures and sinful al- 
ements. In order to succeed in restoring 
mitive Christianity it was needful that 
;y should early adopt safer rules by which 
be governed, so they wisely adopted the 
w Testament as 



THEIR CREED, 



k 



their only rule of faith and practice. 

N(i|iat this demanded they resolved to prac- 

, and wherein it was silent, both in the 

ter and the spirit, they determined to pro- 

d with the utmost precaution. Early in 



'ear 



butiir history they adopted the name 



)eri 



BRETHREN 



the endearing appellation by which they 
)uld be known. Hundreds flocked to 
ir standard; within a few years they be- 
I'Jne quite numerous in different parts of 
^rmany, and were as happy as they were 
^out and loyal. To meet and study the 
iptures seems to have been their delight, 
d to this habit of studying the Word, and 
istantly appealing to it as the man of their 
msel, may be attributed their success in 
ing to the world a form of worship so 
sely resembling the form which prevailed 
the time of the apostles. They soon 
rned that the children of God should in 
ages of the Christian church be a 

SEPARATE PEOPLiE, 

t they should separate themselves from 
world in a way that would enable them 

avoid the sins and unbecoming ways of 
world. For that reason they absented 

mselves from places of amusement of ev- 
grade and order. They also adopted a 

in style of dressing, dispensing with jew- 

/, ornaments and costly array, and attiring 
jjj^g mselves as becomes devout men and 

men. They also learned that to be 

ristlike they must be a 



HARMLESS PEOPI.E, 

hence they resolved to take no part in war 
or in learning the art of war. To them it 
was evident, as it is also evident to all the 
members of the Brethren church, that the 
use of carnal weapons is absolutely contrary 
to both the letter and spirit of the New Tes- 
tament and should be avoided by every con- 
sistent professor of Christianity. They also 
literally carried out the instructions of James 
where he says, " But above all things, my 
brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nei- 
ther by the earth, neither by any other oath: 
but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay." 
James 5:12. So even to this day the Breth- 
ren affirm on all occasions when acting un- 
der the instructions of law. 

SECRET SOCIETIES. 

These ancient brethren early in their his- 
tory took a decided stand against secret so- 
cieties of every grade and order, maintaining 
that they are not only contrary to the plain 
teaching of the Gospel, but that they are a 
detriment to the church and a decided inju- 
ry to society. They made provisions for 
taking care of their poor, and thus did away 
with the necessity of the members uniting 
with any of the so-called charitable institu- 
tions. To this part of the New Testament 
teaching they still adhere with a zeal that is 
to be commended. Neither will they permit 
their members to engage in lawsuits with 
one another. They will not even permit one 
of their number to sue an outsider without 
first consulting the church, or at least the 
officials of the church. As a result they sel- 
dom engage in lawsuits of any character. 
In fact it has constantly been their aim to 
live as much above the world as possible and 
thus avoid many temptations. 

FEET- WASHING. 

Taking the literal reading as well as the 
literal meaning of the Gospel as they do, it 
was no more than natural that they should 
fall into the practice of keeping the ordi- 
nances as they were observed by Christ and

^1 apostles. A careful reading of John 13 
^.ivinced them that feet-washing, in the as- 
{ Jibly of the saints, was a Christian duty 

ch Jesus meant to enjoin upon all his de- 
{ lit followers. By comparing Scripture 
[ h Scripture they also learned that in con- 

tion with the rite of feet-washing Jesus

THE I.OKI>'S SUPPER, 



5. 



ich consisted of a meal to be eaten to- 
her by the faithful just prior to partaking 
he loaf and cup. To their mind the term 
per meant a full meal, to be eaten at the 
I se of the day. It is yet the custom of the 
rl'thren to come together at a stated time 
engage in what they call love-feast serv- 
These services always take place in 
evening. Tables are prepared and ordi- 
y food arranged in sufficient quantities 
a regular meal. Around these tables the 
mbers seat themselves, the sisters occu- 
ng one part of the room and the brethren 
ther part. While thus seated the cere- 
ny of feet-washing is performed, a broth- 
flashing and wiping the feet of the broth- 
by his side, and he the feet of another, 
i so on until all have engaged in the serv- 
The sisters serve each other in like 
nner. At the completion of the service 
y eat together the supper which is before 
m. The food is partaken of with becom- 
reverence and in silence. Thanks are al- 



ways returned both before and at the close 
of the supper. Immediately following this 
is 

THE COMMUNION SERVICE, 

which consists in partaking of the loaf and 
cup in memory of the sufferings and death 
of Christ on the cross. In the Sacred Rec- 
ord we read that in the evening he came 
with the twelve, and washed their feet while 
at the table; that they then ate a supper to- 
gether, and immediately after the supper he 
passed the bread and cup of the Commun- 
ion. The Brethren follow this plain exam- 
ple of the Master, and continue the three 
rites in the same order they were practiced 
the last night that Jesus was with his disci- 
ples, and the same order in which they arc 
carefully described in the records of Mat- 
thew, Mark, Luke and John. More or less 
singing, some preaching and scriptural read- 
ing are engaged in during these services, 
which usually close shortly after dark. Just 
before passing the loaf and cup the mem- 
bers, while yet seated at the table, 

SALUTE ONE ANOTHER WITH A KISS, 

in compliance with the instruction of Paul 
when he says, "Salute one another with a 
holy kiss." Rom. 16: 16. In fact this com- 
mand is given no less than five times in the 
epistolary writings. It is their custom to 
thus greet one another when they meet from 
time to time. And while they aim to ob- 
serve the laws of health, along with the Gos- 
pel requirements, and make use of nature's 
best remedies in case of sickness, they also 

ANOINT THE SICK 

with oil in the name of the Lord, as in- 
structed by James when he says, "Is any 
sick among you? let him call for the elders 
of the church; and let them pray over him, 
anointing him with oil in the name of the 
Lord." James 5: 14. This anointing, how- 
ever, is confined to the members who call 
for it. These are the main principles incor- 
porated in the

REFORMATORY MOVEMENT 



h which we, as a people, are now identi- 
i. Our ancient Brethren laid the founda- 
_n of this movement carefully and secure- 
being certain to predicate every part of 
on the written Word. The movement 
med destined to do a wonderful work in 
rope, but persecution drove the entire 
d of faithful men and women to Ameri- 
2]j and most of them settled in the vicinity 
( Germantown, Pa. Here was organized 
21: first church in the New World, and it 
s here that they erected their first house 
worship. They were soon favored with a 
ge publishing house, and sent forth a vast 
lount of literature. Here they also held • 

SUNDAY SCHOOL 

ig before these schools were known 
long the leading denominations. Afid 
me of their Sunday school literature, in 
z form of cards is still in existence, 
om Germantown they spread to other 
rts of Pennsylvania, and then southward 
d westward, until at this time they may 
found in most of the States and Terri- 
fies. Early in their history, after reaching 
nerica, they became known as German 
^ptist Brethren, and are still known by that 
'm in legal transactions, but they have 
ways called themselves Brethren, and re- 
n the term in all their church literature, 
ley are also widely known as Tunkers, 



sometimes incorrectly written Dunkards, the 
term coming from a German word which 
means to dip, signifying their method of 
baptizing. After the churches began to in- 
crease in number some differences naturally 
arose between them, and this led to the con- 
vening of general councils, which have since 
become known as 

THE ANNUAI. MEETING, 

a very important factor and a bond of 
union in their church work. These Annual 
Meetings are not legislative but judiciary, 
and deliberate only on questions sent to the 
Conference by the local churches. Every- 
thing is decided by the plain letter of the 
Gospel, or, in the absence of this, by the 
spirit of the Gospel. The object of the 
Conference is to unify the faith and practice 
of the different congregations, and keep 
them all in line with the plain teachings of 
the New Testament. The decisions of these 
meetings are published from year to year 
and sent to all the churches, that the 
churches may understand the mind of the 
Conference on the various questions present- 
ed for consideration. Each member is ex- 
pected to comply with these decisions, not 
because the Annual Meeting says so, but 
because the decisions thus agreed upon are 
presumed to set forth the teachings of the 
Scriptures as they relate to the questions in 
hand. At this time the Brethren number 
not far from 

EIGHTY THOUSAND 

communicants in the United States. Among 
these are 2,200 ministers, the most of 
whom labor with their own hands for 
support, and yet preach regularly. Many of 
them hold either one or two services each 
Lord's Day. They are not generally edu- 
cated men, and yet, as a rule, they are well 
versed in the Scriptures, and often deliver 
their discourses with marked ability. They 
are noted for their zeal and simplicity, and 
by their earnest appeals carry conviction to 
those seeking for the primitive order of wor-

ip. Of late years they have become very 
gressive in 

3IISSIONAKY WORK, 



d at this time have well-conducted mis- 

)ns in Denmark, Sweden, Asia Minor 

d India. Their greatest efforts, however, 

e put forth in this country. They have a 

dl-organized missionary system, and a 

rge tract department, wholly under the 

ntrol of their General Conference. By 

Jeans of their tracts they mean to reach 

ery part of the Union, and are following 

) the work thus started by earnest mission- 

(/ efforts. Their aim is to set their plea 

[lly before the people, believing that when 

§eir claim in behalf of the primitive order 

worship is well understood, they will be 

' idly accepted by all those willing to take 

e New Testament as their only infallible 

le of faith and practice. 



EDUCATION. 



Perhaps no body of people in America 
ve made such rapid progress in the edu- 
tional line as have the Brethren during 
e last fifteen years. The sentiment in 
vor of education is strong, and is still 
owing. At this time they have well- 
nducted and properly-organized educa- 
)nal institutions at Huntingdon, Pa., 
'idgewater, Va., North Manchester, Ind., 
["^"t Morris, 111., McPherson, Kans., and 



Lordsburg, Cal. While these schools are 
private enterprises, they are under the con- 
trol of the Conference, spiritually and moral- 
ly, and are subject to the regulations of the 
General Brotherhood. 

PUBLISHING BUSINESS. 

The publishing business, located at Mt. 
Morris, 111., is owned by a number of stock- 
holders residing in different parts of the 
Brotherhood, but the papers and Sunday 
school supplies published are under the 
supervision of committees appointed by the 
Conference, and are required to be conduct- 
ed in the interest of the Brethren church. 
A list of these publications may be found in 
another part of this Almanac. Great efforts 
are being made to bring these publications 
up to a high standard, and the increasing 
demand for them shows that the labors are 
being appreciated. The Sunday school sup- 
plies will be found among the very best and 
deserve to be widely circulated. We further 
believe that there is a 

GREAT FUTURE 

in all parts of the world for the Brethren. 
They advocate principles that should be- 
come universal among the Christian denom- 
inations. In addition to accepting the New 
Testament as their only infallible rule of 
faith and practice, they maintain that both 
the letter and the spirit of its teachings 
should be faithfully carried out. Their ad- 
vance position on the war question should 
concern the entire civilized world, for they 
hold that war is unchristian, that arbitration 
should take its place, that great standing 
armies should be disbanded and the great 
navies and fortifications be turned to better 
use, and thus relieve the hard-working peo- 
ple of the enormous burden, now resting 
upon them on account of excessive taxation 
in support of war preparations. It is also 
well known that nearly one hundred years 
ago they took a decided stand against slav- 
ery, which was finally abolished; and now 
they are opposing the use of intoxicants

d tobacco with equal zeal. From the 
ginning of their reformatory movement, 
ey have stood in defense of temperance; 
much so that they will not permit their 
ambers to engage in the traffic or encour- 
e it in any shape or form. They are also 
deavoring to discourage the use of tobac- 
in every way possible, and are develop- 
^ a ministry that will soon be entirely free 
lin-pm the use of the weed. In fact, they will 
more install into office a minister who 
bitually uses tobacco. And now,

e form of doctrine once delivered unto the

■A earth, to give the claims herein set forth

HOW TO MAKE SCANDAL. 



Sometime ago I discovered this old recipe 

'■^x making that unsavory dish, — scandal. 

he author of it is unknown. But I am sure 

y readers as a unit will eschew it when they 

ad the deleterious ingredients that make 

ijp the compound: 

Take a grain of falsehood, a handful of 

mabout, the same quantity of nimble-tongue, 

sprig of the herb backbite, a teaspoonful 



of don't-you-tell-it, six drops of malice and 
a few drachms of envy; add a little discon- 
tent and jealousy, and strain through a bag 
of misconstruction, cork it up in a bottle of 
malevolence, and hang it up on a skein of 
street yarn; keep in a hot atmosphere; shake 
it occasionally for a few days and it will be 
fit for use. Let a few drops be taken before 
walking out and the desired result will fol- 
low. J. O. Garst. 
Dayto7i, Ohio. 



THE GOLDEN CITY, JERUSALEM.— Rev. 21 



A RECTANGULAR solid, 12,000 furlongs 
square equals a city 2,250,000 miles long, 
6,000 miles wide, with 24,000 streets, each 
320 feet wide. The buildings would be 
1,000 feet deep, 40 stories, 33 feet each. 
This makes a city 1,320 feet high, — more 
than twice as high as the tower of Babel. 
The city has twelve gates. Rev. 21: 13. 
Suppose one person should pass through 
each gate every second, which would be 
twelve per second, and commence with 
Adam and continue day and night for 6,000 
years, there would pass in 2,270,592,000,000 
persons. Allowing each one a room ten 
feet square, at the expiration of 6,000 years 
the city would be more than half unoccu- 
pied. We can write and read of the beau- 
tiful city but it is beyond the power of the 
human mind to comprehend its greatness.

REV. J. K. BROWN»S EXPERIENCE. 



I HAD no occasion to use Chamberlain's 
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy in my 
own family, but have tried it on other par- 
ties. With one for colic, one dose cured it. 
With another for diarrhoea, and two doses 
cured him. From the satisfaction it gave in 
the cases tried I must say I believe it is all 
the manufacturers claim for it. — Rev. J. K. 
Brown, Woodbury, Bedford Co., Pa.

THE TWO PICTURES. 



It was in the home of two very respect- 
le Christian parents where we saw the 

7-5t picture. It was in the sitting room, 
11 supplied with books and the current 
brature of the day. The floor was nicely 
peted, the room well furnished and cosy, 
d the walls adorned with pictures, 
nong them was a framed photograph of 
handsome couple in fashionable garb, 
represents the father and mother in their 
ire when they belonged to the world. 

mJNow they appear quite different and are 
yarded as exemplary church members. 
iieir children are all grown, but none are 
the church. What is the cause? Father 
d mother have often spoken to them 
out joining the church, but their words 
ve made less impression than that picture 
the wall, which has had its influence on 
^ir minds ever since they were born, — 
rhaps before. The daughters think, 
imma is beautiful in that fashionable garb 
d unconsciously they determine to make 

^^jit picture of mother their type of female 

ET'rfection and worthy of imitation. Those 
:ll-formed features, bright eyes and fash- 
lable garb, are contrasted with the 
inkled brow, careworn features and plain 
ess, and they decide in favor of the for- 
ir, because, say they, " Mamma looked 



U 



nicer when she was young than she does 
now." 

That picture on the wall is more potent 
than all the instructions of father and moth- 
er in regard to the religious duties of their 
children. All the children are grown up 
and none in the church,— perhaps never 
will be. The mother wonders why her 
daughters are so fond of dress. She has 
often spoken to them about uniting with 
the church, and wonders why she has no in- 
fluence with them. Who is to blame when 
none of the children of ministers and even 
of elders are in the church? 

Here is another picture. It is not a 
photograph, but a view of home life. The 
father and mother are both exemplary 
church members. The influences they exert 
over their children are all one way, and 
they are careful what company the children 
keep and what literature they read, so that 
no influences, outside of the home, may 
overbalance their own. Instead of the 
daily papers, filled with the exciting events, 
notices of murders, thefts, etc., they have 
on the centre table a well-worn family Bible, 
**The Pictorial Bible for Children," ''The 
Royal Path of Life," " Bible Lands," The 
Messe?iger, Brethre?is Quarterly , Juveriile Quar- 
terly, Young Disciple, Missionary Visitor, etc., 
with some other choice literature to which 
no Christian parent can object. 

What is the result? The life, character 
and teaching of the parents are all one way. 
All the children are in the church, from the 
oldest to the boy of nine, and are all " sound 
in the faith." S. Z. Sharp. 



ELDER LIGHT HAS TRIED IT. 



Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar- 
rhoea Remedy was used in my family and 
I can say that it did us good in diarrhoea and 
cholera morbus. I do not hesitate to rec- 
ommend it to all suffering from the above 
diseases. — Eld. H. E. Light, Mountville, Lan- 
caster Co,, Pa.

imitators, who copy her morals and man- 
ners. As the mother is so are her sons and 
daughters. If a family of children is 
blessed with an intelligent mother, who is 
delicate and refined in her manners and 
does not consider it necessary to be one 
woman in a drawing room, and an entirely 
different person in every-day life, but who 
is a true mother and always a tender, 
charming woman, you will invariably see her 
habits of speech and perfect manner re- 
peated in her children. 

Great, rough men and noisy, busy boys 
will always tone down their voices, and step 
lightly and try to be more mannerly 
in her presence. They will always be 
gentle when she stops to give them a 
pleasant word or a kind smile; for a true 
mother will never fail to say or do all 
the pleasant things that she can, that 
will, in any way, help or lift up and 
cheer those whose lives are shaded 
with care and toil. The mother of to- 
day rules the world of to-morrow.

Ventilation is a subject which 
should be understood by every human 
being, not only that man may apply it 
to himself, but also to the domestic 
animals, for their well-being is, in a 
sense, very intimately connected with 
our own; hence duty and humanity 
demand our attention to the subject; 
and if for the brutes that perish, much 
more for our servants, and, above all, 
for our children. 



DIARRHOEA QUICKLY CURED. 



My wife had an attack of diarrhoea for sev-

lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, 
and the result was it stopped it immediately.

THE LORD'S BOX. 



|(SoME people keep their money in purses, 

i(iers in banks, a few in large iron safes, and 

ijcasionally one keeps his money in a box. 

lie are acquainted with a few devout Chris- 

11 ns who keep a box for the Lord. It is 

1 tnetimes called "The Lord's Box," and at 

-Tiers "The Mission Box." Into this box 

sy place one-tenth of their net income. 

\ The laboring man, who gets S30.00 for a 

)nth's wages, drops ;^3.00 into the Lord's 

The farmer sells cattle to the amount 

^1,000.00. He figures up the net income 

;^i 50.00, and drops 1^15.00 into his mission 

PC. The merchant's net income, during 

year, is ;^ 14,000. He has been placing 

D.oo a month in his tithes box, as he calls 

and at the end of the year, seeing what 

actual net income is, he drops in ;^20.6o, 

iking $140.00 for the year. 

A. preacher does not have much income, 

t he places one-tenth of the amount in the 

>rd's box. He marries a number during 

year, and each groom never thinks of 

zing him less than ;^2.oo, and most of them 

ze ;^5.oo. After deducting his expenses for 

trip, he places the remainder in his box. 

any people give him something for preach- 

l funerals — he does not like to take it — but 

ior thinks of his mission box, so he drops it 

there. A servant girl receives $2.00 a 

ek for her labors in the family. She is 



Mor 



poor, and needs money, but she thinks she 
will feel so much better if she drops twenty 
cents into her neat little mission box, which 
she keeps in her drawer. 

A call is made for money to preach the 
Gospel to the heathen; to support an evan- 
gelist in the field, to aid the tract work, to 
build a house of worship, to help the poor, 
to feed or clothe some unfortunate soul, or 
to send the Messenger to some earnest seeker 
after the truth, and it is such an easy matter 
for any of these people to go to the Lord's 
box, take out $5.00, $10.00 or even $20.00, 
and sometimes more, and hand it over to the 
good cause. The poorer members have 
plenty of dimes in their boxes, some of them 
have dollars, and it does their souls good to 
give a few dimes or quarters to any worthy 
cause. They never think of giving pennies. 
That day is past with them. Were this to 
become the general practice in the Brother- 
hood, what a wonderful report, of money re- 
ceived each year, could all of the mission 
boards make! 

Have you a mission box? If not, let us 
advise you to get one at once, and put there- 
in one-tenth of your net income for the 
Lord's cause, and at the end of a year we 
assure you that you will be a much happier 
person, and the Lord's work will prosper ac- 
cordingly. J. H. M.

WANTED A BARGAIN. 



"Can't I get these two-cent stamps cheap- 
er if I take a quantity?" asked Mrs. Chest- 
nut of the stamp clerk at the Philadelphia 
post-ofifice. "I can let you have a dozen for 
a quarter," replied the clerk. "Very well; 
I'll take them." 



IT CURED ELDER HEQE'S LITTLE BOY, 



My little boy was taken with a very bad 
cramp in the stomach. I gave him a dose 
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar- 
rhoea Remedy and it gave immediate relief. 
He has had no attack since. — Eld, George 
Hege, Williamson, Franklin Co.^ Pa.

HOW WE GO TO SLEEP. 



"Order is heaven's first law," and the 
iath is manifested even in the process of 
)ing to sleep. When a man drops off to 
lep, says the Cincinnati Medical Journal^ his 
dy does not do so all at once, so to speak, 
me senses become dormant before others 
d always in the same order. As he he- 
mes drowsy the eyes close and the sense 
seeing is at rest. It is quickly followed 
' the disappearance of the sense of taste, 
e next loses the sense of smell, and then, 
ter a short interval, the tympanum be- 
tmes insensible to sound, or rather the 
;rves which run to the brain from it fail to 
ouse any sense of hearing. The last sense 
leave is that of touch, and in some hyper- 
nsitive people it is hardly ever dormant, 
ven in this case, however, there is no dis- 
iminating power, or sense of what touched 
em. This sense is also the first to return 
3on awakening. Then hearing follows, 
er that taste, and then the eyes become 
)le to flash impressions back to the brain, 
he sense of smell, oddly enough, though 
is, by no means, the first to go, is the last 
' come back. The same gradual loss of 
Dwer is observed in the muscles and sinews 

^Ji well as in the senses. Slumber begins at 
e feet and slowly spreads up the limbs 

M|id trunk until it reaches the brain, when 
iconsciousness is complete and the whole 



111D|. 



body is at rest. This is why sleep is im- 
possible when the feet are cold. 



RULES FOR CHURCH KILLING. 



1. Don't come. 

2. If you do come, come late. 

3. Try to make lots of noise. 

4. Don't imagine the front seats were 
meant for you; people might think you con-

5. Come bound to find fault. 

6. Don't for the world ever think of pray- 
ing for the church. 

7. Don't sing. 

8. Don't take any part in the service. 

9. Don't encourage the pastor, but tell his 
faults to others. 

10. Visit other churches half the time. 

11. If somebody said a good thing and it 
helped you, don't tell him, it might make 
him vain. 

12. If you see a stranger in the audience 
make him as uncomfortable as you can. 

13. Never speak of the meetings to any 
one. 

14. Don't believe in missions. 

15. Don't give much to benevolence. 

16. Let the pastor do all the work. 

17. See that he bears the cross alone and 
you go free. 

18. Don't take your denominational paper. 

19. Don't give your preacher anything; it 
may spoil him. 

20. Try to run the church. 

21. If you think everything is harmonious, 
try to do something to engender all the 
strife you can.

CHILDREN AT THE TABLE. 



)| 

Table manners are, or ought to be, an 
liportant part of the training of children, 
possible, the little folks should always 
eet with the father, mother and older 
embers of the family at the table. It is 
3t always wise to crowd them off to a side 
ble by themselves. They should not lead 
le conversation; they should be taught 
-2ver to interrupt their elders, but they 
lould be allowed to assist in the conversa- 
on, which will teach them to express their 
loughts intelligently, and parents should 
ie that they use the best language. Chi] 
ren can be early taught to eat quietly; to 
It^oid noises in swallowing and chewing; to 
[se the fork and not the knife, that with the 
Ingers can be taken bread, fruits and cake; 
le proper use of the napkin, and that they 
r^re not to display any marked likes and dis- 
kes. Older members of the family should 
! je as polite to each other and to the chil- 
ren as to any guest; then you will not be 
aunted by the fears, that, in some unguard- 
ed moments, the children will bring them- 
elves and you to disgrace, for table man- 
ers "are sure indications of social, mental 
.«jnd moral culture."

PINEAPPLE JUICE FOR DIPHTHERIA. 



Diphtheria prevails to an alarming ex- 
ent in many parts of the West at the pres- 



ent time. We have frequently called the 
attention of the readers of the Criterion to 
pineapples as a remedy for this dangerous 
disease. We have tried them in our own 
family and found them very effective. Pine- 
apples will sometimes give immediate relief 
when other remedies have failed. A corres- 
pondent of one of our city papers who was 
on a visit to Mississippi some time ago with 
his family, says that while there one of his 
family was taken with diphtheria and his 
death was only a question of a few hours. 
In describing the incident he says: "An old 
colored man, to whom my wife had shown 
some kindness, called at the house, and, 
saying he had heard of my little one's ill- 
ness, urged me to use pineapple juice. The 
old fellow declared that in Louisiana, where 
he came from, he had seen it tried many 
times, and that in each case it had proved 
effective. So I secured a pineapple and 
squeezed out the juice. After awhile we 
got some of it down the boy's throat, and in 
a short time he was cured." — Grocer's Cri- 
terion. 

REMEDY FOR ONION MAGGOT. 



Half a pint of kerosene is well mixed 
with a pailful of some dry material, prefera- 
bly wood ashes, but sand, sawdust, or even 
dry soil will do fairly well, and after the 
plants are well up and the trouble is at 
hand a sprinkling of this mixture along the 
rows about twice a week during the time the 
fly does its work will be found a sure pre- 
ventive. — Scientific American. 



ELDER LICHTY RECOMMENDS IT. 



I WISH to say, 1 tried Chamberlain's Colic, 
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and found it 
to be good for what it is recommended. I 
also gave it to a neighbor on trial and they 
thought it just the medicine for that for which 
it is recommended. Therefore I would rec- 
ommend it to all families. — Jonas Lichty, 
Glade y Pa.

MISSIONARY NEED IN THE UNITED STATES. 



The crying need to-day in these United 
States is to establish a church in every vil- 
lage and city in the country. How much 
better it would be if the church would 
arouse herself to her opportunity and keep 
pace with civilization! Instead of one or 
more saloons starting first in the foundation 
of every town throughout the land, let a 
church be built and the Word be preached, 
and soon will the world be converted to 
Christ, for to save the United States for 
Christ is. to save the world for Christ. 

The greatest barrier to such progress is 
the slowness and indifference of the churches 
in calling talent to the ministry. Though 
upwards of five years ago, Annual Meeting 
seeing this great need, urged the churches 
to call suitable ones to the ministry, the 
number called is not as great as it should 
have been. The Lord's cause cannot pros- 
per without an abundance of workers. So 
let the churches call more young men to the 
work. God will not hold us guiltless after 
placing within our reach all the necessary 
means for this great work. Think on these 
things, brother, sister. 



Do not forget that in writing to our mis- 
sionaries in foreign lands you should place 
five cents postage on every half ounce, or 
fraction thereof. 



If you do not wish for the kingdom of 
Christ, stop praying the Lord's Prayer; but 
if you do, then you must not only pray, but 
work for it.

THE MISSION AT SMYRNA. 



Bro. Fercken went there familiar with the 
language and customs of the people, and 
this, in part, accounts for the encouraging 
results in this field. Every member should 
desire to share in the blessing attending 
such good work, and surely none will with- 
hold their aid to build up primitive Chris- 



This picture gives us a scene of one of 
the streets in the city where our mission- 
aries, elder and sister G. 
J. Fercken, are laboring. 
Smyrna is in Asia Minor, a 
realm under the government 
of the Sultan. In the Otto- 
man empire the will of the 
Sultan is absolute law unless 
it is in opposition to the prin- 
ciples of Mohammedanism, 
as laid down in the Koran 
and interpreted by the head 
of the church. 

Foreigners residing in Tur- 
key are under the protection 
of their home governments 
and are amenable for trial 
where the Turk is not inter- 
ested, — to a tribunal presid- 
ed over by the U. S. consul. 

The past two years have 
witnessed scenes in this land 
dreadful to think upon. 
What is in store for bleeding Christianity in 
Asia Minor no one knows. 

Our missionaries landed there in July, 1895. 
Since then ten accessions have been made, 
the First Church of the Brethren in Smyrna 
organized, and one native minister elected. 
An orphanage to receive and educate home- 
less Armenian children has been founded.

ulsar. (Pronounced Bui like dull; sar 

ime as in star, and accent on the last sylla- 

le.) This town, the present mission sta- 

on of the Brethren, is 

25 miles north of Bombay 

id a few miles back from 

le sea. Next in size to 

ulsar is Untrdi, almost 

ue north nearly six miles. 

he many villages around 

ulsar average about fifty 

ouses each, some more 

id others less. This map 

ives some idea of the 

snsity of population of 

idia. In the Bombay 

residency, in which is 

ulsar, there are 133 per- 

)ns to the square mile. 

his is below the average 

)r British India, which is 

>2. The northwest Prov- 

ices and the Oudh coun- 
qiy are about three times 

le size of the State of 

idiana and have a popu- 

tion tv/enty-two times 

1 great, or 416 souls to 

le square mile. 

Many indirect influences are 
0jhristianity to break down the walls of 

eathendom. Every youth having any ambi- 

oji and opportunity is learning the English 



language. This naturally carries with it 
Christian ideas. Along with this influence is 
the steady and gaining influence of Western 
civilization. Hinduism branded its follow- 
ers with the gravest sin when they dared to 
cross the ocean and gather Western ideas. 
But ambitious Hindus go, and their sins are 
now cancelled by a comparatively small 
penal sum. This clearly indicates a decided 
decline in the power of the priest. 

Among the lower classes there is a decid- 
ed movement towards Christianity. Some 
parts not supplied with Christian teachers 
are calling loudly for the "Jesus way." 
Millions upon millions are without a knowl- 
edge of Christ. There are 25,000,000 wid- 
ows in India, 77,000 of whom are under ten 
years of age, and all are cruelly abused and

their hearts. y,The ordinary laboring man

this is considered a fair allowance for a fam- 
ily. Their food is principally pulse, meager 
in quantity, coarse in quality, and their mud 
huts have anything else but the appearance 
of home. 

There are about 175,000 heathen to every 
Christian missionary in India. In this vast 
field of labor are our three young, faithful 
and consecrated missionaries, — brother and 
sister W. B, Stover and sister Bertha Ryan. 
They have been there now for two years 
and have acquired the language, the Gujer- 
ati, so that they can do some work among 
the natives. 

Funds donated to this mission will be put 
to good service, and while the returns in 
visible effects may not be seen so soon as in 
other fields, this is largely compensated in 
the fact that living is cheap in that land, 
and a hundred dollars lasts a long time. 



THE PLACE OF SAFETY. 



An evangelist relates: "I was much im- 
pressed when at Southampton, England, at 
the time the regiments returned from the 
severe campaign in the Soudan, by the fact 
of one regiment being so much fuller than 
the others. I supposed it had not been in 
action, but I learned that it had often been 
exposed to the hottest fire of the enemy. 
The secret was that the commanding officer, 
cool and collected in the moment of danger, 
had ordered his men, when the firing be- 
came hottest, to lie down, and there, half 
lying, half crouching on the burning sand, 
they had lain in safety while the bullets 
whistled harmlessly overhead. O Christian, 
in the hour of conflict, get to your knees! 
There the enemy cannot touch you!" 



COUNCIL=MEETINGS. 



How can church members be induced to 
attend church councils more generally? is a 
question often asked by those who have the 
welfare of the church much ^ heart. I sub- 
mit these thoughts: 



1. By teaching the members that eac 
member, whether young or old, is of tl 
body and therefore has an inteicest at stal« 
and a duty to perform in helping to do tl 
work of the church as the Lord has givt 
ability to each. The young, as well as tl 
old, should be encouraged to help arran< 
the business and thus learn how to do tl 
business of the church by doing it, the san 
as the boy learns to skate by skating. 

2. Let all church councils be made as e( 
ifying to all as possible. For this, promp 
ness, on the part of the officials of tl 
church, is essential. The elder in char^ 
should see to it that the official members 
the church meet one hour before the tin 
for council, to outline a program of sue 
business as is ready to come before tl: 
church. 

3. Let the elder see to it that he is in h 
place, to call the meeting to order and ope 
the meeting promptly at the time announce 
for the council. The meeting should t 
opened by singing and prayer, after which 
few verses of suitable Scripture should t 
read, and a few appropriate remarks mac 
by the Moderator or some one designate 
by him. 

4. Let the Minutes of former meeting t 
read by the Clerk, after which the Moder; 
tor should say, ''You have heard the readir 
of the Minutes. If no corrections are o 
fered, they will stand approved as read." 

5. Unfinished business comes next in o 
der as it is entered upon the Minutes, unle. 
otherwise ordered. Thus one item after a: 
other should be brought up, clearly presen 
ed, and promptly disposed of. After i 
item is declared before the meeting by tl 
Moderator, any member, whether male < 
female, old or young, has the right to mal 
a motion to dispose of the business befo 
the meeting, which, if seconded by anoth 
member, may be entertained by . the Moi 
erator, who should then require every mer 
ber who desires to speak to confine himse 
to the motion; that is, to give reasons wl 



Brethreris Family Almanac. 



33 



;he motion should or should not pass, as now 
before the house. If the motion be not satis- 
actory, as before the house, any member 
las a right to move an amendment to it, 
vhich, if seconded, takes the precedence of 
he main question, and, if voted on and lost, 
he main question remains before the house 
s before. If the amendment, as proposed, 
" s carried, the question stands before the 
liouse as amended, and is ready for further 
e .ction. The utmost freedom to speak on 
If he question should be accorded to any 
t! nember who has anything to say directly 
rj >n the motion before the house. The Mod- 
1 rator should not allow members to con- 
in erse with their neighbors while in session. 
HI liis is utterly out of order, and should not 
tl e allowed. Members, at variance with 
ach other, must not be allowed, under any 
\ ircumstances, to discuss their grievances 
ip, ath each other before the congregation. 
Q )ne may ask the other a question, or re- 
uest an explanation, after he has obtained 
ermission to do so from the Moderator, in 
le presence of the congregation. 



WHAT A GOOD MODERATOR WILL DO. 



I. He will be prompt in his place, and 
crlfee that the meeting is opened at the time 
jer ^ecified for the meeting to begin. 
dii 2. Having a program of business previous- 
£ ' arranged, he will avoid private counsel- 

ig with other official members in the pres- 

ice of the congregation. 
nle 3. He will see that business moves off 
rariskly, by keeping the speakers to the 
;senf)int under consideration. 

4. He will, at the proper time, take the 



^r 1 



Dte and announce the result. A fair and 



^'^ Seedy way to take the vote on ordinary 
^^" aestions is the way the brethren do at An- 
^^'^ lal and District Meetings. First by ask- 
lotli g. «<Are there any objections to the mo- 
Mo'on?" If none are offered, he declares it 
fi'^lissed. If objections are offered, he will 
y: *'A11 in favor of the motion will make 



iiiise 



is^^' known by standing." Then, ''AH opposed 



to the motion will make it known in the 
same way." 

WHAT A GOOD MODERATOR WILL NOT DO. 

1. He will neither make, second, nor dis- 
cuss, a motion while moderator. 

2. He will not express a preference for 
either side unless there be a tie vote. Then 
he may vote his preference. 

Church councils thus conducted will be 
likely to be well attended by the members, ' 
and will prove an inspiration and a benefit 
to all. Daniel Vaniman. 



LAUGHTER. 



In his "Problems of Health," Dr. Green 
says that there is not the remotest corner, 
or little inlet of the minute vessels of the 
human body that does not feel some wave- 
let from the convulsions occasioned by 
good, hearty laughter. The life principle 
of the central man is shaken to the inner- 
most depths, sending new tides of life and 
strength to the surface, thus materially 
tending to insure good health to the persons 
who indulge therein. The blood moves 
more rapidly and conveys a different im- 
pression to all the organs of the body, as it 
visits them on the particular mystic journey 
when the man is laughing from what it does 
at other times. For this reason every good 
hearty laugh in which a person indulges 
tends to lengthen his life, conveying, as it 
does, new and distinct stimulus to the vital 
forces. — Ram's Horn. 



SUMMER DRINK5. 



During the first very warm days those of 
the spring and early summer, the thirst is 
generally greater than when one has grown 
accustomed to the heat. Resort to the 
pitcher of ice water furnishes often only 
tem.porary relief and, by frequent and ex-» 
cessive drinking from it, harm is sometimes 
done. A little lemon, squeezed into a half 
glass of water, will quench the thirst far 



34 



Brethren's Family Almanac. 



better than a whole glass of water without 
it. Or if the water has been taken too free- 
ly, the eating of a slice of lemon generally 
takes away the parched feeling from the 
throat. Pure, strained orange juice is also a 
healthful drink. All who content them- 
selves with freshly-drawn water from cistern 
or well, without adding ice, know how much 
more lasting is the satisfaction. — Ram's 

Horn.

BROWN BREAD THE BEST. 



People use the white flour of commerce 
because they are born into the idea that it 
must be white to look nice. There is no 
principle of physiology which bases the qual- 
ities of food upon a white color. Color is a 
sentiment. Food, to be food, must contain 
all the elements of the tissues the body 
feeds upon. It does not say the body must 
be white. 

This preference for white flour comes al- 
together from habit and false education; for 
those who eat bread and other food made 
from whole-wheat flour soon begin to love 
it, and in a short time experience a natural 
craving for it which white bread does not 
and cannot satisfy, and the light brown 
color of the bread, with its rich wheat flavor, 
is a constant reminder that the life and sus- 
tenance are not driven out, while its satisfy- 
ing and nourishing qualities attest that it is 
the perfection of hale and healthful food. — 
Baker's Helper. 



The General Missionary and Tract Com- 
mittee sent out last year over 2,000,000 
pages of tracts. These have done excellent 
service. The list of tracts has been greatly 
enlarged and they are correspondingly more 
useful. Reader, if you are not acquainted 
with the tenets of the Brethren church, do 
not hesitate to drop a card stating that you 
would like to learn more of the faith, and 
tracts fully explaining will be sent you 
gratis. Address, General Missionary and 
Tract Committee, Mt. Morris, 111. 



RAPID EATING. 



Prof. Norton says there is a prevalent, 
idea that slow eating is favorable to diges- 
tion, but this is often fallacious. The im- 
portant point is not that we eat slowly or 
fast, but that when we do eat we chew with 
energy. Of course, where the haste is due 
to some mental anxiety^ this may injuriously 
inhibit the secretions. Slow eating begets a 
habit of simply mumbling the food without 
really masticating it, whilst the hurried 
eater is inclined to swallow his food before 
proper mastication. Hence, hurried eating 
is bad, but rapid mastication may be advan- 
tageous. It concentrates our energies on 
the act in question, and hence more thor- 
oughly accomplishes it. Moreover, ener- 
getic chewing stimulates the secretion of 
saliva in the most favorable manner. 



A LADY took a basket of eggs to town, 
and upon being asked how many she had, 
said: **If I take the eggs out of the basket 
two at a time I have one ^^^ left in the 
basket; if I take them out three at a time I 
have one ^^^ left in the basket; if I take 
them out four at a time I have one ^^^ left 
in the basket; if I take them out five at a 
time I have one ^'g'g left in the basket; if I 
take them out six at a time I have one egg 
left in the basket; but if I take them out 
seven at a time I will have none left in the 
basket. How many eggs are in the basket? 



Mothers who are confronted weekly with 
tremendous holes in almost new stockings 
and it is remarkable what two days' wear by i; 
an active child can accomplish in this re- 
spect, will do well to follow the lead of om 
home darner who has worked out her owrfci: 
salvation in the matter very cleverly. She 1)1 
takes a piece of strong net, bastes it dvei e 
the hole and then darns over it, thus accom 
plishing a neater and stronger darn than ir 
the old way, and in a shorter time. Thefti 
same method is successful in mending 
woven underwear.

HOTELS IN EAST INDIA. 



A HOTEL in India is in some respects 
quite unlike a hotel anywhere else in the 
world. Every guest has a servant of his or 
her own. The hotel has some servants, but 
the guests do not depend upon them at all. 
IVIy servant takes care of my room, brings 
ne my tea and toast when I arise, prepares 
ny bath, and waits upon me at table. He 
dso keeps my clothes clean and my boots 
slacked, sees to my laundry, gets me a car- 
riage when I want one, and does my errands. 
A^hen traveling- he will attend to the tickets 
md the luggage and make my simple bed 
>f >n the cars, for India is a country of mag- 
lificent distances, involving considerable 
iiight travel. There are no regular sleeping 
ars like ours, but the seats are long enough 
vn 3r the passengers to stretch out on and 
id ade enough to make a reasonable couch, 
hich the traveler provides with his own 
lin mattress, pillow and wraps. The num- 
er of servants in a great hotel is confusing 
t first. In a long corridor you see one be- 
)re each door. They usually sleep there, 
rapped in a sheet or blanket and curled up 
n the floor. — A Traveler, in the Scientific 
merican. 



MEAT EATING AND TEMPER. 



Mrs. Ernest Hart, who accompanied 

sr husband in his recent trip around the 

gs orld, appears to come to the conclusion 

lat meat eating is bad for the temper. In 

le Hospital she says that in no country is 

oni )me rendered so unhappy and life made so 

Q^i iserable by the ill-temper of those who are 

% )liged to live together as in England. If 

Qve t compare domestic life and manners in 

.0^ ngland with those of other countries 

^ji ii lere meat does not form such an integral 

\\\ tide of diet, a notable improvement will 

j^jini : remarked. In less meat-eating France, 

Ibanity is the rule of the home; in fish and 



rice-eating Japan, harsh words are unknown, 
and an exquisite politeness to one another 
prevails even among the children who play 
together in the streets. In Japan I never 
heard rude, angry words spoken by any but 
Englishmen. I am strongly of the opinion 
that the ill-temper of the English is caused 
in a great measure by a too abundant meat 
dietary, combined with a sedentary life. 
The half-oxidized products of albumen cir- 
culating in the blood produce both mental 
and moral disturbances. The healthful 
thing to do is to lead an active and unselfish 
life, on a moderate diet, sufficient to main- 
tain strength and ^not increase weight. — Sci- 
entific American. 



FUN FOR THE CHILDREN. 



A little fun in the family, now and then, 
is a good thing. Here is something for the 
children. With a small cord suspend a large 
apple from the ceiling in the manner shown 

in this cut. If 
the stem is not 
long enough to 
tie the cord to, 
by means of a 
darning needle 
the cord may be 
passed through 
a button and 
then through 
the apple. The 
boy or girl who 
can take a bite 
from the sus- 
pended apple, keeping hands off, may claim 
it. If no one in the house can secure the 
apple in that way, let two approach the 
apple from opposite sides, take a firm hold 
with the teeth, then pull. The one who re- 
tains his hold on the apple is the successful 
one. This will do for some rainy day, or 
some gloomy evening. But be careful that 
you do not choke by taking too large a piece 
in your mouth, and then attempt to laugh.

HEALTH HINTS. 



— Use fruits that are ripe, fresh, perfect, 
raw. They should be used in their natural 
state, without sugar, cream, milk, or any oth- 
er item of food or drink. 

— A consumptive man is one who has al- 
ready lost the use of a part of his lungs — the 
more need, then, is there that the air which 
he does consume should be the purest possi- 
ble. 

— Any great emotion of passion or pleas- 
ure, soon after eating, causes death; hence, 
no highly exciting or momentous news 
should be communicated, even to the health- 
iest, let alone the sick and the feeble, imme- 
diately after a full repast. 

— Boils are the result of impure blood, 
made so by imperfect digestion; or an excess 
of bile, owing to a torpid liver or the want 
of sufficient out-of-door exercise. They are 
not a sign of health, but that nature is carry- 
ing on a healthful process. 

— Many persons bring on life-long dys- 
pepsias by the mere habit of drinking sever- 
al glasses of cold water at their meals; an 
equal amount of hot drink would be ^^reatly 
more advantageous, but half a pint of any 
fluid at a single meal is abundant for all 
healthful purposes. 

— The effect of constipation is to thicken 
the blood, to make it more impure; hence 
more unfit for healthful purposes. The more 
impure the blood is, the thicker does it be- 
come, the slower is its progress, and if noth- 
ing is done to alter this state of things, stag- 
nation and death take place. 

— By the extravagant use of tea, many 
persons pass their nights in restlessness and 
dreams, without being aware of the cause of 
it. We advise such to experiment on them- 
selves, and omit the tea altogether at sup- 
per, for a few times, and notice the result. 
If you sleep better, it is clear that you have 
been using too much tea, in quantity or 
strength. 



— An erect gait gives to a woman a queen 
ly appearance, and to men an air of manli 
ness, integrity, and fearlessness. To bene 
forward or downward while walking indi 
cates debility, depression, or mental trouble 
and always aggravates itself and promote; 
disease. _ 

—If a child wakes up in the morning, an( 
calls for a drink of water the first thing, §ucl 
a child is perfectly certain to be sick befon 
noon. The course to be pursued is, to keej 
him in bed, and by warm drinks promot 
perspiration, eating nothing whatever unti 
the afternoon, when he may amuse himsel 
by nibbling at some cold, dry bread, and tb 
next day he will be about again. Otherwise 
a breakfast will be eaten, fever comes or 
vomiting, and several days' illness. 

— Farmers' wives lose health and life ev 
ery year in one of two ways: by busy in 
themselves in a warm kitchen until wear) 
and then throwing themselves on a bed c 
sofa without covering, and perhaps in 
room without fire, or by removing the oute 
clothing, and perhaps changing the dress fc 
a more common one, as soon as they ente 
the house after walking or working. Th 
rule should be invariably to go at once to 
warm room, and keep on all the clothing, i 
least for five or ten minutes, until the fon 
head is perfectly dry. In all weathers 
you have to walk and ride on any occasioi 
do the riding first.

International SeIf=Pronouncing Teachers* 
Bibles. 

American Edition from new plates; complete Teachers' Bible 
with Illustrations, References, Maps, Word Book, and all neces- 
sary helps to Bible study. 

The peculiar features of tliis edition are the Books of Reference 
and the Word Book. After each topic is given a selected list of 
books bearing upon that subject, for those who desire to con- 



tinue the study more fully. While these lists are not complete, 
yet an effort has been made to select books of practical value as 
well as scholarly attainments. 

The Word Book is a new feature in Bible Aids. It includes 
those words whicli have been usually given in various alphabet- 
ical lists, thus o^ten requiring research in several places before 
the information "could be obtained. When necessary to give 
fuller descriptions than possible in the Word Book, the index 
reference will give at once the clue to its page and column in the 
general articles. This Word Book forms the larger portion of 
the Aids, and includes Concordance, Index, Proper Names, 
Gazetteer, etc. It will commend itself to all desiring something 
for ready reference.

er. An excellent present to children, $1 00

of this little volume grew out of my fruitless efforts to justify my- 
self by mere works. These efforts led me to a more careful study 
of the Word of God and thus to better light. If this little book 
should help some poor, struggling souls to see sometliing higher 
than mere works, to live even above rites and ceremonies, and 
depend wholly upon Christ for justification, while still faithfully 
obeying all his commands, its mission will be accomplished,"

celestial messengers than they are likely to gather from any oth- 
er source within their reach. There is not a member in the 
church who ought not to read this little book, and especially

ple.

The rapid progress in the study of Biblical antiquities dur- 
ing the past twenty years urgently called for a new work; for

of the Bible, cannot be overrated. In a popular manner Pro- 
fessor Bissell treats of domestic, civil and sacred antiquities. 
The latest accepted results of scientific study and exploration 
are given, making it the most trustworthy, scholarly and in- 
structive book on the subject.

It is surprising that in this labor-saving and time-saving 
age the ever popular Matthew Henry's Commentary has not be 
fore been issued in convenient volumes. Two features of thii 
new edition call for special attention: First, the moderate size 
the volumes; second, the large size of the type (larger than ii 
any previous edition). Other features are the excellent printing

Charles Foster, author of "The Story of the Bible," etc. 

328 pages, with a colored frontispiece and 148 illustrations. 

Printed in large, plain type. Price, cloth, by mail, . 75 cents. 
This book has been prepared for the instruction of very 
young children. It is arranged on a plan different from either of 
the author's other works. It consists of separate passages or les- 
sons; most of them quite short, and each one complete in itself. 
Each lesson has at least one illustration, and is followed by ques- 
tions so simple that the little hearers, if attentive when the pas- 
sage is read, may readily answer them. If your little boys and 
girls are just beginning to read, get this book for them. It will 
fill their minds with good things to think about, and what better 
can you do than help a child in this manner?

Among all the text-books on theology. Dr. Hovey's Manual

Scriptural enforcement. He seems to have carefully considered 
almost every verse of the Bible which contains a principle of doc- 
trine or rule of practice, and then to have set them forth with a 
clearness that will cause every one " to understand the reading." 
To ministers and students it is invaluable, and will be of great 
use to superintendents, teachers, and all who wish to be well 
versed in the Holy Scriptures.

A series of thirty articles on the Nature and Scope and Meth-

90 cents 

This work is the ripest result of the lifetime study and ex- 
perience of a Christian educator in the sphere of the home train- 
ing of children, as distinct from their teaching in the week-day 
school or the Sunday school. Every precept in its pages has 
been tested by the principles of Christian philosophy, and by 
actual experiment in more than one generation of little ones.

Seventh Day Adventism Renounced, after an ex-

that faith. Second edition enlarged and improved. 413 pp., 
5J^x8 inches. Cloth, with portrait of author, post-paid, $1.50; 

paper cover, without portrait, post-paid, 60 cents. 

The author's long experience in Adventism qualifies him to 
write upon this subject as no other could. The Adventists have 
published more than a score of his productions, wliile with them, 
and use them still. The first edition of this book is exhausted 
and a new one issued; yet the Adventists have ventured no reply. 
The following is a brief outline of the contents: Introduction by 
Rev. Dr. Nelson; Doctrines and Methocls of the Adventists; My 
Experience; a Yoke of Bondage; History and Mistakes of Ad- 
ventists; Objections to the System; The Two-horned Beast; The 
Three Messages; Mark of the Beast; The Sanctuary; Mrs. White's 
Visions; Why We Keep Sunday; Did tlie Pope Change the Sab- 
bath? The Sabbath in Both Testaments; The Jewish Sabbath 
Abolished; Sabbatarian Failures; The Law in all its Phases; The 
Two Covenants; Christ's Law; All their Prominent Texts from 
Gen. 2: 1-3 to Rev. 22: 14 (42 in all) Examined; The Question of 
Immortality Discussed, etc. Filling a place which no other book 
does or can, the author has endeavored to make it a work which 
no one interested in these questions can afford to be without. 
Adventists are pushing their work everywhere with increasing 
boldness. Hence such a book is needed now.

"The Pilgrim's Progress" is unquestionably the book 
which has come nearest to the Bible, in the extent of its sale and 
universal popularity. No edition of this celebrated work that 
can compare with this one in size, quality of printing, paper and 
binding, and number and excellence of illustrations, has ever 
before been published at the price.

W. Cathcart, D. D. i6mo, 222 pages. Price, net, .... $1 00 
In this work the author has furnished some very interest- 
ing and important chapters on the history of baptism, showing

was the prevailing practice throughout the Christian world for 
twelve centuries after the establishment of our holy religion.

Turning Points; or Great Questions for Young 

Men and Women.— By John L. Brandt. With introduction 
by F. D. Power. Revised and enlarged edition. Beautifully 
and fully illustrated. i2mo, cloth, handsome side and back 

stamps ■ $1 50 

"It is very handsome. The subjects treated are living ques- 
tions, and the treatment of the author is vigorous and pure. I 
have not the honor of a personal acquaintance with him, but aft- 
er reading his book and seeing his picture, feel that I should 
know him anywhere."— Z. T. Sweeney. " It is a charming book. 
It has a quality of diction rarely found in books, viz.: raciness 
and liveliness of a living voice in the very presence of the reader. 
Every parent.should see that a copy of this book is in the home, 
and that all the boys and girls become familiar with it. It is 
striking for its argumentative collation of facts of history, biog- 
raphy, science, and politics, presented succinctly in proof of 
propositions. Above all, it should be said that through it all 
runs a deep religious current. It is a standard book.—/. H. Ftd- 
ler. 

A Scriptural View of the Office of the Holy Spirit. 

— By Dr. Robert Richardson. 324 pages, i2mo., cloth, $i.So; 

our price $1 35 

The design of this work is to present the teaching of Scrips 
ture, in reference to the work of the Holy Spirit, in the salvation 
of men. It is not its purpose to enter minutely into all the ques- 
tions connected with this important subject, but, while consider- 
ing such of these as have an immediate practical relation to the 
present wants of religious society, to give a clear and distinct 
view of the entire office of the Holy Spirit, as relates both to the 
church and the world. 

The Holy Spirit in Conversion.— By J. W. Randall. 

A debate between Rev. Asa Sleeth, of the Methodist Episco-

Holy Spirit in conversion? 236 pages; i2mo., cloth, $1.00; our 
price go cents 

The Mission of the Holy Spirit.— By J. W. Randall.

63 pages 10 cents 

History of Sprinkling.— By L. C. Wilson. Contains 

171 pages. Price, cloth, 50 cents; our price, 4S cents 

A new book full of old truths. It is the best and only book 
on the action of baptism, acknowledged to be without a peer in 
the strength of its testimony. If this book does not present the 
history of sprinkling correctly it is because the world's histori- 
ans, best scholars and most godly men have spoken incorrectly 
on the subject. Many good libraries do not contain as much in- 
formation on this subject as is found in this one volume. It is an 
unanswerable argument in favor of the New Testament teaching 
on the subject of immersion. An irresistible refutation of the 
plea for sprinkling. 

Christian Baptism.— By A. Campbell. With its An- 
tecedents and Consequents. 444 pages, i2mo., half leather,

The Impregnable Rock of Holy Scripture.— A se-

Hon. William Ewart Gladstone, M. P., and issued in book 
form by a special arrangement with their eminent author. 
Revised and enlarged edition, $1.00; our price, .... 90 cents 
This book shows how the Bible appears to a statesman and 
man of affairs, alter he has carefully weighed the evidence which 
the critics have brought against it. Perhaps Mr. Gladstone's 
powers were never used to better purpose than in the writing of 
this book. Those who have been accustomed to look to the the- 
ologians for the defense of the Bible are anxious to learn what 
are the convictions of such ^ representative layman regarding it. 



The Emphatic Diaglott. — Containing the original 

Greek text of the New Testament, with an interlineary word- 
for-word English translation; a new emphatic version, based 
on the interlineary translation, on the readings of the Vat- 
ican Manuscript (No. 1,209 in the Vatican Library); together 
with illustrative and explanatory foot notes, and a copious 
selection of references, to the whole of which is added a valu- 
able alphabetical index by Benjamin Wilson. i2mo, 884 pp. 

Cloth, bevel edge, $4.00; extra fine binding, $5 oc 

The different renderings of various passages in the New 
Testament are the foundation on which most of the sects of 
Christians have been built up; with this work each readeir may 
judge for himself, whether the words there literally translated are 
so arranged in the common version as to express the exact mean- 
ing of the New Testament writers. It will be found a great aid 
to the proper understanding of many portions of the New Testa 
ment. To clergymen who have a slight but not thorough knowl 
edge of Greek, to those who have none, and to all Sunday school 
teachers it will be found almost indispensable when once used.

This book is designed and prepared for Bible students who 
3 not know a word or a letter of Greek, as well as for the m«st 
ireful and critical scholars. The index meets the need of any 
telligent student of the English Bible. It leads the ordinary 
|nglish reader to the Greek original, classifies all the passages 
jhere each Greek word occurs, reveals at a glance the number of 
ays in which it is translated in the New Testament, shows in 
hat senses it is most frequently or more rarely used, and exhib- 
|3 in their order first the primary, and afterwards the several 
ore remote senses of the different terms. It presents all the 
liportant various readings of the most famous ancient manu- 
ripts of the New Testament. It supplies a Greek concordance 
the New Testament, presents late results of sound textual in- 
stigation, and affords the most critical student valuable infor- 
ation which he can nowhere else so easily obtain; yet all is so 
nply stated that the mere English reader can use it in his 
toll jery-day studies. It is so cheap that the multitude may pui 
ii) iase it, and so compact and portable that it may be made the 
nstant companion of the traveler, the student and the evangel-

'''fie Scheme of Redemption.— By Robert Milligan.

'[I 8vo., 578 pages, cloth, $2.00, our price, $1 75 

In order to understand fully and perfectly any one part or 
ment of a system it is necessary to have, in the first place, a 
aeral and comprehensive knowledge of the whole. The several 

[line! ments must be viewed and considered in their relations to 

yjene :h other and to the whole scheme or system of which they are 
; component and constituent parts. . . Just so it is with re- 
jct to the Bible. It, too, is a unit. Its primary, general and 
imate object is to develop one great and glorious system of 

teitaii vine Wisdom, justice, goodness, mercy and love, through Je- 

lotli,! 3 Christ, for the redemption of fallen man.

The Types and Metaphors of the Bible are treated in

There is no more fascinating chapter of missionary history

culation it deserves.

themes,— examples to aid in the development and presentatio! 
of themes of their own selection,— then their usefulness canno 
be doubted.

...GOLDEN THOUGHTS... 

...ON... 

Mother, ^ Home ^ and ^ Heaven 

In Poetry and Prose, by 400 Best Authors ; Elegantly Illustrated ; 
With an Introduction by T. L. Cuyler, D. D. 



This volume stands uneqiialed as an embodiment of the ripest thought and utterances 
riie )f the best and wisest minds upon the " three dearest names to mortals given." In addi- 
ion to original articles, the compiler has made selections from the storehouses of ancient 
Soolmd modern literature, and with masterly skill and effect has woven into the fabric of the 
)Ook every appropriate topic within the scope of the subject. He has given us a book 
bounding in advice, admonition, comfort and consolation, clothed in " thoughts that 
reathe, and words that burn." With such an array of well-known and brilliant writers of 
11 ages, from Seneca (B. C.) to Joseph Cook, we can safely bespeak for the book a reputa- 
jion of rare excellence and enduring merit. There never was a theme of greater power and 
randeur associated with the creations of the prolific press than the noble trinity of mother, 
ome and heaven. Many hearts will thrill with tenderness, many eyes glisten with tears, 
nd many voices grow tremulous with emotion as these soul-stirring words fall upon the 
ar. Its vivacious spirit, its sparkling gems, its rich and varied fund of information, its 
snder and loving suggestions, its deep undertone of piety, all conspire to make it one of 
be grandest legacies, or tokens of regard and affection bestowed upon relatives and friends 
t will prove a beautiful and enduring monument to the dignity, glory and power of moth- 
rhood. Many a mother will feel her weary hands growing stronger and her faint heart 
rowing hopeful as her eager eyes scan its pages. It will be a voice for the home, a sweet, 
)ving voice pleading for its peace, its safeguards and its sanctity. And it will also be a 
oice whispering in loving accents of heaven, delineating its glories, and developing a pur- 
ose to secure it. 

If you are a parent, get it; it will prove a faithful counselor in home affairs. 

If you have a home, get it; it will aid you in making home life more beautiful. 

If you are bound for heaven, get it; it will cheer and help you on the way. 

Get it! If you have a mother, father, brother, sister, son or daughter at home or 

EDroad, on whom you would bestow a gift that would at all times prove a welcome guest of 
ire worth and lasting benefit, get it! 

This work is comprised in one large volume of 454 quarto pages, embellished with 
lely-engraved and elegantly-printed steel plate and wood cut illustrations and an illumin- 
ed presentation page. It is printed from plates made from new type, on fine-toned and 
dendered paper, in elegant holiday binding, at the following low price:

...LIFE AND WORKS 



...OF... 



harles # Haddon # Spurgeon 

By his Intimate Friend and Co-worker, 

Henry Daveiaport Norttirop, D. D. 



This very attractive volume contains a graphic account of the life and labors of Dr. C. H. Spurgeon. 
portrays in glowing colors the brilliant career of the most celebrated preacher of modern times, his match- 
)S eloquence, his tender pathos, his ready wit, and his wonderful mastery over the human heart. 

It is an intensely interesting narrative of Dr. Spurgeon's life, and is enriched with the choicest of his ser- 
)ns and lectures, and with a vast collection of thrilling extracts from his most famous writings. 

This comprehensive volume is divided into three parts. 

Contains the great preacher's history. It relates in a most delightful manner the incidents of his early 

, shows you the boy preacher at the age of sixteen, and traces his marvelous successes in the great metrop- 

. It describes the immense Metropolitan Tabernacle and its vast throngs, among whom were not only the 

or and illiterate, but the most famous persons of the realm, including Gladstone, Bright, Shaftesbury, and 

iltitudes of others. 

Dr. Spurgeon was not merely a popular preacher; he was a sunny, genial, witty, great-hearted man. He 
s as bold as Luther or Knox, yet possessed deep sympathies, fiery zeal, loving charity, and carried on 
my enterprises for the welfare of the poor and unfortunate. This work describes his college, where bun- 
ds of poor young men were educated, and his Orphanage, which sheltered thousands of homeless children 
His last, lingering illness; the religious world watching at his bedside; the eagerness with which reports 
. re awaited; his removal to the South of France in hope of recovery; and the final scene when he breathed 
last, and both hemispheres were startled by the news, all are depicted vividly in this fascinating volume. 



Contains Dr. Spurgeon's most celebrated sermons and lectures. These are plain, pithy, expressed in 
orous Saxon, and go right to the heart. Young and old alike are interested in them. These alone should 
ise this volume to find its way to every household in the land. 

Comprises a vast collection of witty, wise, pathetic, eloquent extracts from the famous preacher s writ- 
s. These are illustrated, and are very captivating. Gems from the Spurgeon " Note Book," quaint say- 
s of "John Plowman," beautiful figures and weighty moral lessons, enrich this superb volume. 

No work published is so eagerly sought; all classes of people are anxious to obtain a copy of this graphic 
ry of the world's greatest preacher.

in the reach of the common mi?id, that all might receive profit by studying it.

dix at the end of Vol. 2, any one, who is somewhat persevering and diligent, will \ 
able to get the understanding of almost any text, except the mysterious unknown.

[Ch. XXVIII. 



14 And if this come to the governor's 
ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. 

15 So they took the money, and did as 
they were taught: and this saying is com- 
monly reported among the Jews until this 
day. 

16 *[[Then the eleven disciples went 
away into Galilee, into a mountain * where 
Jesus had appointed them. / ch. 26: 32; ver. 7. 

17 And when they saw him, they wor- 
shipped him: but some doubted. 

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, 
saying, ^'All power is given unto me in 
heaven and in earth. 

yfeDan. 7: 13. 14; ch. 11: 27 & 16: 28; Luke i: 32 & 10: 

21; John 3: 3S & 5: 22 & 13: 3 & 17: 2; Acts 2: 36; 

Rom. 14: 9; I Cor. 15: 27; Eph. 1: 10, 21; Phil. 2:9, 

10; Heb. i: 2 & 2: 8; I Pet. 3: 22; Rev. 17: 14. 

19 ^ 'Go ye therefore, and ^*^ teach all 
nations, baptizing them in the name of the 
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 
Ghost : 3 Or, make disciples, or, Christians of all 
nations. /Mark 16: 15. mis. 52: 10; Luke 24: 47; 

Acts 2: 38, 30; Rom. 10: 18; Col. i: 23. 



14 Stole him away while we slept. And if 
this 2 come to the governor's ears, we 
will persuade him, and rid you of care. 

15 So they took the money, and did as they 
were taught: and this saying was spread 
abroad among the Jews, ajtd continueth 



until this day. 



2 Or, come to a hearing before 
the governor. 



16 But the eleven disciples went into 
Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus 

17 had appointed them. And when they 
saw him, they worshipped him: but 

18 some doubted. And Jesus came to them 
and spake unto them, saying. All au- 
thority hath been given unto me in 

19 heaven and on earth. Go ye therefore, 
and make disciples of all the nations, 
baptizing them into the name of the 
Father and of the Son and of the Holy 



to hire the soldiers to tell a falsehood which 
was self -contradictory. How can one be a 
witness of an event like this occurring while 
he is asleep? As a whole, this becomes a 
strong evidence that Jesus did rise from the 
tomb, because of the barrenness of this their 
best proof against it 

14. Governor, viz., Pontius Pilate (chap. 
27: 2). Persuade him and secure you. 

They had previously persuaded Pilate to 
deliver Jesus to be crucified (John iq:. 13-16), 
when he knew that he was innocent. They 
could as well persuade him again to allow 
the soldiers to publish the falsehood of verse 
13. 

15. This saying, viz., of verse 13. This 
day, the time of the writing of this Gospel 
record. 

16. A mountain. This is supposed by 
some to be Mount Tabor, a short distance 
southwest of the Sea of Galilee. 

17. Some doubted. Comp. John 20: 25. 

18. AH power is given unto me, etc., or, 
"all authority," etc. (R. V.). This implies 
that all the intelligences in heaven, and all 
heavenly agencies on earth, will, at the re- 
quest of Christ, yield obedience to and aid 
him in the prosecution of the great work 



committed to his hands. (Comp. Phil. 2: 
9-1 1.) 

19. Go ye therefore, that is, because I 
have authority over the whole earth and 
heaven, and teach all nations, or, " make 
disciples of all the nations " (R.V.). " Preach 
the Gospel to every creature" (Mark 16: 15). 
Teach them until they believe (Mark 16: 16; 
Acts 8: 37; Rom. 10: 17; Heb. 11:6), and re- 
pent. (See Luke 24: 47; Acts 2: 38.) Bap= 
tizing, Greek baptizontes from bapto, to dip; 
to immerse; to plunge into water. Literally, 
to dip into any liquid. Them, — the nations 
who shall hear and believe the Gospel, and 
repent of their sins. In the name of the 
Father, or, "into the name of the Father" 
(R. v.), that is, into the Father's name. 
And of the Son, that is, into the Son's 
name. And of the Holy Ghost, that is, in- 
to the Holy Ghost's name. From this it 
will be seen that the language of verse 19 
requires three actions to constitute the one 
ordinance of Christian baptism. The names, 
" Father," " Son," and " Holy Ghost," each 
being given under the same general condi- 
tions and in the same independent construc- 
tion, require a separate, similar act of 
immersion. If only one name were given 
in the formula, as, for example, " Father,"

POINTS

not have survived a period of almost threescore years without possessing facilities of special merit. 

2. The College has passed the period of weakness, inefficient work, and dissatisfaction so common to 
earlier years of educational institutions,— a period in which the student cannot expect to receive returns for 
money and time equal to what students receive who attend an old, tried, and established institution.
